Author Biography

Professor Daitz, now retired from the Music Dept. of The City College/City University of New York after teaching there for many years, is still active as a musicologist and choral conductor/singer. Her publications have been in two areas of music history: French song of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and 20th-century Estonian choral music. She is currently working on a study of the National Committee for Refugee Musicians, which was active from 1938 to 1942, assisting a large number of musicians, mainly from Austria and Germany, to emigrate to the USA and then to find work as musicians.
